MOPS group a ‘lifesaver’

Lights lend hope to charities, honor Petit family

By Deborah DiNicola Special to The Citizen For mothers of preschoolers, just getting out of the house in the morning can be a big accomplishment. That’s why, twice each month, the women of Cheshire MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) get together for a morning meeting of friendship, food, childcare and discussions relevant to their season of life. It’s a reward for themselves and their children for making the effort to get out

and about to do something social. According to Shala LaTorraca, the MOPS coordinator, “When I started attending MOPS last year, it was a lifesaver. I had a three-year-old daughter and fairly newborn son. I was also new to the area. Coming to MOPS allowed me the opportunity to have a brief reprieve from the kids and enjoy good conversation. Some of my best friendships have been built in MOPS.”

A hope sign and luminaries line a mile-long stretch of Route 10 in Cheshire Nov. 10. Laurie Rich Salerno Special to The Citizen The annual Lights of Hope event is a beautiful but solemn time. This is the church in which the Petit family was active, before three of them were killed in a 2007 home invasion. And though the lighting event was created eight years ago in one neighborhood to help vari-

ous charities, it has now expanded and become identified with the Petit family. A portion of the proceeds go to the family’s foundation. “That’s why we continue to do it — to remember the family,” said Kim Erickson, who organized the church’s effort this year. She was standing in the middle of a large heart with a cross in it formed by luminaries on the green in front of the

church on Academy Road after sunset Saturday, Nov. 10, helping other parishioners light some of the more than 1,000 candles on the property. Volunteers said the day brought the best weather the event has ever seen. The church is not far from the mile-long stretch of Route 10 that was lined

The Cheshire Citizen — Thursday, November 15, 2012

Residents approve $32.5 million referendum by wide margin By Andrew Ragali The Cheshire Citizen

funding will allow the town to continue a 20-year process to rehabilitate roads. The project began two years ago, and has been funded $1.5 million a year. “If we miss a year, it backs us up,” Milone said. “It’s important we stay on track.” Both Milone and David Schrumm, the Water Pollution Control Authority’s Town Council liaison, said the treatment plant work is critical. “I’m very pleased we can move forward,” Schrumm said. “It’s been holding up other capital projects we need to do.” After the project failed last year, Schrumm felt “people saw the wisdom of what we’re doing.” The delay cost the town about $700,000. Dennis Dievert, the treatment plant’s supervisor, said he’s excited the project will move forward. “It’s great,” he said. “I’m

actually relieved.” He thinks the public realized the hazard an aging wastewater treatment plant presents. He also thinks state funding helped. Bidding for the treatment plant upgrade will begin this winter, with the final design completed by June. Dievert

thinks work will begin in about a year. “We hope we’ll get this thing cooking soon,” he said. (Andrew Ragali can be contacted at and followed on Twitter: @AndyRagz.)

This Saturday!


Town officials are relieved that all three referendum questions on the Nov. 6 ballot were approved by voters. The biggest surprise was that the $32.5 million wastewater treatment plant upgrade passed by a wide margin after it was shot down last year by about 200 votes. Voters passed the treatment plant upgrade 8,181 to 3,999, according to unofficial results. Last year’s proposal did not include the $7 million grant and 2 percent state loan that were part of the plan voters approved Tuesday, Nov. 6. “It’s quite a turnaround from last year,” Town Manager Michael Milone said. “I didn’t think it would pass that overwhelmingly.” Milone said he was worried about the placement of

the treatment plant question on the ballot. The two other referendum questions — $750,000 for technology improvements and $1.5 million for road improvements — were placed prominently on top of the ballot, while the treatment plant question was in the right margin. The technology improvement funding passed 6,856 to 5,611, while road improvements passed 8,593 to 3,964, according to unofficial results. “They’re all really critical in their own way,” Milone said. Milone said that if the technology initiative had failed it would have halted other town projects. The funding will allow the town to install a new geographic information system, which maps out the town’s residences and open space, he said. The road improvement

Adventures in holiday cooking with Cheshire’s top chefs Chef DeCrosta

A few of Cheshire’s top chefs talked with The Cheshire Citizen recently to offer tips and suggestions to help make the upcoming holiday celebrations especially memorable in the food department. When friends and family gather for a meal this season, impress them with these new flavor combinations and tell them you learned a few tricks from some of Cheshire’s best kitchen magicians. See chefs’ tips this page and next.

Banish bland stuffing! Don’t be timid with seasoning. Sage is often used in stuffing. If you haven’t added any, or not enough, try that. You can also try ginger, thyme, parsley, celery salt, or rosemary. Some people add fruit to their stuffing, which can be especially nice in a cornbread stuffing. Apples, persimmons, raisins, and cranberries are all possibilities. If you feel like being a bit more adventurous in your vegetable choice, try carrots and sweet potatoes mixed with oranges, zest and maple syrup with a little cinnamon and nutmeg.

Thursday, November 15, 2012 — The Cheshire Citizen Chefs continued

Chef Futia Roasts are great to serve when you have company. When using beef and pork, set the oven no higher than 325° so the roast does not overcook and shrink. For best results when serving a roast, let the roast rest at least 15 minutes after you take out of the oven. Then you can carve it. Your roast will come out beautifully juicy and tender. Get the best color and texture from many vegetables including broccoli, broccoli rabe, and asparagus by immersing in cold, icy water immediately after cooking. It will stop the cooking process and help to lock in the color.

Chef Corso Don’t be afraid to try something different for an entrée. A rack of lamb is a delicious alternative to the usual fare. One of our favorite finishes? Do a crust with panko. Use a honeymustard glaze to coat, and then cover with panko. It’s especially good with lamb.

gle Scout who volunteered with many local organizations, such as Read to Tots, Relay for Life and the Cheshire Volunteer Department, according to a biography from Lights of Hope. His Eagle Scout project was a memorial garden for Nick LaTorraca at St. Bridget School, who died of cancer. Overall, Walsh said, he was pleased with the turnout this year. “More young people participated in this year than ever before. That’s what we’re shooting for.� Evan Cohen, who was surrounded by children helping to light the candles on the front of Temple Beth David on Route 10, said the synagogue was participating for its second year, donating enough for 250 candles. Next year the goal is 300, he said. “We definitely had more turnout this year — I hope that this continues for years to come,� Cohen said. “It’s absolutely beautiful. I can’t wait to drive down Route 10.� Erickson said she’d come back late at night when the crowds had left, as the candles will often burn past midnight. “It’s just so peaceful,� she said.

Robberies at Dunkin’ Donuts, Dairy Queen Two robberies in two days have made some people in town nervous. The Dairy Queen on South Main Street was held up Nov. 9, less than 24 hours after a Dunkin’ Donuts down the road was robbed by a man brandishing a knife. Police say a man between the ages of 45 and 55 entered the Dairy Queen at 1062 S. Main St. Friday night at 6:37 p.m. He implied that he had a weapon before asking for the contents of the cash register,

There hadn’t been any similar events in town since 2010, when a man with a gun robbed a convenience store on West Main Street. Two

men were arrested in Wallingford that night. People near the Dairy Queen about 5 p.m. Saturday said they were concerned

about what the robberies


a Saturday press release from the department said. The man took off with several hundred dollars. The crime occurred about 20 hours after a robbery at Dunkin’ Donuts at 310 S. Main St. “It is unknown at this time if the incident has any connection with the robbery that occurred on Nov. 8 at Dunkin’ Donuts,” the release said. In that 10:30 p.m. incident, a man brandishing a knife demanded money and left with $250. No description of the man was given.

Rescuers find Cheshire woman trapped between buildings PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A 22-year-old woman is recovering at the hospital after becoming trapped in a roughly 8-inch space between two buildings near Brown University in Providence. The Providence Journal reports that according to a police report, Courtney A. Malloy, of Cheshire, was apparently drunk when she was found around 1 a.m. by a passerby. She told authorities she didn’t know what happened. Dan LaPlante told WPRI-TV he was walking in the area and heard someone cry for help, saying she was suffocating and hurt and couldn’t move. He found her wedged in the tiny space and called 911. Acting Battalion Chief Jeffrey Varone tells The Providence Journal firefighters opened a hole in one building to help free her.

Election round-up ✩2012✩

Three referendum questions get voters’ OK

Question 1: Technology upgrade A $750,000 technology reserve fund was approved 6,856 to 5,611. The technology upgrade is a multi-year project that started last year. The project will now enter the second of five phases. The upgrade replaces outdated technology infrastructure in town departments and the public schools. Question 2: Road re-pavement program A $1.5 million for a road repavement program was approved 8,593 to 3,964. Road maintenance was identified as an important long-term project by the town in 2008 after an engineering company performed a pave-

ment management index study. “If we spend between $1.5 million and $1.75 million every year, we’ll repave all our roads over a 20-year period,” Town Manager Michael Milone said, in comments prior to the vote. Question 3: Water Pollution Control Plan $32 million for upgrades for the water pollution control plan was approved 8,181 to 3,999. Last year, a $30 million referendum for the treatment plant upgrade failed. The plant operates with several components that are over 40 years old. Milone called the plant a possible “public health calamity” if it ever failed to operate at full capacity. Last year, residents were faced with a full $30 million bill, but this year, the state has

provided a $7 million grant, through the Clean Water Fund, along with a two percent loan. “Everybody has done a much better job of educating the public on the importance of this,” Milone said. Even if the project began construction today, it wouldn’t be complete until 2015, he said.

State Senate 13th District Incumbent state Sen. Len Suzio, a Republican requested a recount of last week’s election results but the request was denied by Secretary of the State Denise Merril as results fell outside the margin necessary for an automatic recount. The latest count had challenger Dante Bartolomeo, a Democrat, winning the election by 238 votes. The threshold for a recount is 198 votes or .5 percent of the vote. Last week, Cheshire poll officials submitted amended returns reducing Bartolomeo’s margin. However, shortly thereafter, Meriden officials submitted amended returns which increased the margin to a gap of 238 votes. In a letter to Secretary of State Denise Merril, Suzio, 64, of Meriden, said substantial errors have been identified and the potential for more errors in the race is much higher than normal. He also cited a problem at Precinct 16 in Cheshire that double-counted Bartolomeo’s

Working Families and unknown votes on election night. Furthermore, he said the head moderator in Meriden was the treasurer of the Democratic candidate, saying a recount would assure the public the vote count was administered in an impartial manner. The latest reported results showed Bartolomeo, 43, of Meriden, over Suzio with a total vote of 19,893 to 19,655. In Cheshire the latest vote count shows voters favored Suzio over Bartolomeo; 6,020 to 4,377. The district includes Meriden, Middlefield and parts of Cheshire and Middletown. A spokesperson for Merrill said, that Suzio may ask a court judge to order an investigation based on Suzio’s claims that there were several errors discovered in the days following the Nov. 6 election.

State Senate 16th District Republican Joe Markley,

55, of Southington, will represent the 16th Senate District for a second consecutive term after beating Democrat John “Corky” Mazurek, in a close race. The 16th District covers Southington, Wolcott, Prospect, and parts of Cheshire and Waterbury. The (unofficial) tally was 21,281 to 19,406 for the district. Locally, voters supported incumbent Markley by 1,909 to 1,494 over Mazurek. “Corky is a strong opponent and gave me a very pitched battle,” said Markley, a Tea Party adherent, served one term as a state senator in the mid-1980s. Mazurek, 59, of Wolcott, ran on a platform that called for business-friendly laws that would create jobs and grow existing businesses. He is a former four-term state representative from the 80th District, which covers Wolcott and part of Southington. Markley ran on a platform See Round-up, next page

Round-up Continued from page 18 of opposing tax hikes and spending increases, including the New Britain-to-Hartford “busway.” He also pledged to reduce unnecessary regulation and supports local control of education and other vital services.

State House 89th Assembly District Republican Lezlye Zupkus defeated state Rep. Vickie Nardello, a Democrat, in the 89th House District, which covers Bethany, Prospect and part of Cheshire. Zupkus got 6,209 votes to Nardello’s 5,978, according to numbers from The Associated Press. Locally, the totals were Zupkas 1,757; Nardello 2,114. “The people said it’s time, after 18 years, time for a change,” Zupkus said after his Nov. 6 victory. “I hate to say that because it’s such a cliché ... but it’s time to put our state on a different path.” At one point on election night, Nardello called Zupkus to concede, but Nardello later told the Record-Journal that she called Zupkus’ campaign again to rescind her concession after learning that absentee ballots had not been counted. Zupkus said she didn’t hear about that until the next day. She said Nardello closed the gap by about 29 votes, but absentee ballots from Cheshire were still being counted. “I think it’s over. I thought it was over last night,” Zupkus said, even though she hadn’t talked to Nardello again. On Nov. 7, Nardello and her spokesman, Jim Carson, did not return phone messages or emails asking for comment. Zupkus, a Mississippi native, said people she talked to are overburdened with taxes. She wants to cut spending and look at revising or eliminating the paid sick-leave mandate for businesses with at least 50 employees.

The final results were 6,139 to 3,754. For Cheshire the tally was Fritz 1,630; Darter 1,461. The 90th House District includes portions of Wallingford and Cheshire. Fritz was first elected to the legislature in 1982, lost in 1984, and has won every election since 1986. While she doesn’t make campaign promises because “you don’t know what is coming down the road,” Fritz said in her next term she wants to work on laws helping victims of domestic violence. Throughout her campaign Fritz, 74, portrayed herself as a moderate Democrat, noting that she voted against Malloy’s budget and repealing the death penalty. She also touted her accessibility and said she is never more than a phone call away. “I’ve never been afraid to stand up for the people of my district,” Fritz said from a gathering at her Yalesville home Nov. 6. “I take care of the people that sent me to Hartford. A small business owner, Darter, 57, of Cheshire, did not return calls election night.

State House 103rd Assembly District Republican Al Adinolfi defeated Democrat Elizabeth Linehan in the race for the 103rd House District seat Tuesday night. “They came out and voted,”

Adinolfi said. “One of the significant things people told me (was that) I was one of the only candidates that didn’t go negative on anything. A lot of people complimented me on that, and people respected my record.” The vote count came in Adinolfi’s favor by 5,097 to 4,011.The vote count for Cheshire was 3,3331 for Adinolfi and 2,519 for Linehan. Adinolfi will serve his sixth term in the 103rd District, which includes part of Wallingford, part of Cheshire and part of Southington. In conceding, Linehan thanked her supporters and said that while Adinolfi will be the state representative, she feels like she won because of the opportunity to talk to so many people, and she said she was proud of her team. “My whole campaign is based on common sense and a commitment to borrow only what you can afford to pay back,” Adinolfi said. He said Connecticut has to become more business friendly by addressing unfunded mandates on companies.

From left, Republican state Rep. Al Adinolfi and campaign workers Tali Maidelis and Woody Dawson celebrated Adinolfi’s victory over newcomer Democrat Elizabeth Linehan at Cugino’s Restaurant in Cheshire Nov. 6.

State and national results As did the rest of the nation, Cheshire supported Democrats President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden over Republicans Gov. Mitt Romney and Sen. Paul Ryan: 6,621 to 6,535. Also, in Cheshire, the Independent slate of Anderson\Rodriguez took 39 votes. The Libertarian slate of Johnson\Gray took 120. In the U.S. Senate race, Republican Linda McMahon

bested Democrat Christopher Murphy in Cheshire, but not in the state. The local vote was 6,565 to 6,412. Libertarian candidate Paul Passarelli received 209 votes. For representative in Congress Democrat Elizabeth Esty prevailed over Republican Andrew Roraback, in the state and locally. The local tally was 6,856 to 6,046. - Compiled from RecordJournal staff reports

Apex Technology Group to stay on as consultant to town By Andrew Ragali The Cheshire Citizen A bid waiver and consultant successor contract was approved for the Apex Technology Group during a special meeting of the Town Council Nov. 8, allowing the company to stay on as the town’s technology improvement consultant. Town Manager Michael Milone said Apex has assisted the town over several years to put new technology in place, and last year helped oversee the purchase and installation of $350,000 worth of technological improvements. Milone said the town was “faced with a crumbling technological infrastructure” before last year’s upgrades. “We were afraid we couldn’t sustain our tech-

nology very much longer,” he said. Apex was brought in last year when the technology study group, a Town Council subcommittee, found that to successfully phase in the next generation of technology, “a critical resource was to hire a consultant,” Milone said. The bid waiver and contract passed 7-2, with councilors Tom Ruocco and Jim Sima disapproving. Study group Chairman Steve Carroll spoke highly of Apex and Anthony Verril, an Apex employee who worked closely with officials as the town’s chief technology officer last year. “We haven’t been disappointed with them at all,” Carroll said. With $750,000 in technology upgrades approved in a

referendum on Tuesday, Carroll said the town has plenty of work ahead in purchasing and installing new infrastructure. For that reason, the new contract includes the services of Verril and two technicians, as opposed to one technician last year. “We will need that extra body to implement $750,000 worth of systems,” Carroll said. While the consulting firm will provide services for the upcoming year for “over and above” $750,000, Carroll cautioned councilors that in the future more permanent employees with similar skill sets will be needed to maintain and centralize the town’s aging technology infrastructure.

Defending champs stay alive Cheshire knocks off South Windsor, advances to semifinals By Bryant Carpenter Special to The Citizen Junior Emma Farrel is no shrinking violet, so when the Cheshire field hockey team was awarded a penalty stroke Monday evening against South Windsor, there was no doubt in her mind who should take it. “She’s been our main penalty stroker for three years now,” Cheshire coach Eileen Dunham said. “This year, she’s missed a couple for the first time in her career. I was a little nervous about having her do it, but my assistant coaches said, ‘You always have to go with a ringer.’” Not that the coach had much of a choice. “I hadn’t even picked her,” Dunham added. “She’s so aggressive and confident. She picked up the ball. She picked herself.” Farrel was the right choice. Her penalty goal was the first of two she had in the second half to lead the No. 2 Rams to a 2-1 victory over the seventh–ranked Bobcats in the quarterfinals of the CIAC Class L state tournament on the turf at the Maclary Athletic Complex. With the win, the defending state champions advanced to Wednesday’s semifinals, where they were to square off against No. 3 Simsbury at Wethersfield. The Trojans (15-2-0-1) defeated Glastonbury 2-0 in another quarterfinal match on Monday. Cheshire (19-2-0-0 overall) went 22-1 last season, but lost 21 players to graduation. So much for a rebuilding year. “I’m really proud of the team,” Dunham said. “It’s a testament to the legacy that last year’s 21 seniors gave us. We returned five starters, but we started out as underdogs. It’s all due to the hard

work we put in. Because we have a good, dignified senior class, they’re handling (postseason pressure) with composure.” The Rams had to come from behind to punch their ticket to a second consecutive

L semifinal. South Windsor’s Rebecca Schroder scored off a feed from Angie King at 16:03 of the first half to account for the only scoring of the opening period. “This could be your last time on this turf,” Duhman

told her team at halftime. “You need to come out strong. You have to come out strong.” Farrel & Co. seemed to get Dunham’s message loud and clear and dominated the early action in the second half. With 25:38 remaining in the stanza, South Windsor goalie Caitlin Gilligan (12 saves) was whistled for covering the ball. The Rams were awarded a penalty stroke. Farrel took charge. With her teammates kneeling and holding hands behind her near midfield, she blasted a hard shot off Gilligan’s leg pad. The ball caromed to the goalie’s left and nestled just inside the post to knot the score 1-1. “I could hear my teammates in the background and that was reassuring,” the ef-

fervescent Farrel said. “I just told myself not to mess up. I felt like it was a pretty bad stroke, but it was fast enough to roll backwards (off the goaltender).” Her next goal was a nodoubter. With about 14:30 remaining, Cheshire junior Michelle Federico stole the ball, dribbled it up field and crossed to Farrel, who onetimed a rocket into the top left corner of the net for a 2-1 advantage. “Gorgeous,” was how Dunham described it. “It was a beautiful pass by Michelle,” Farrel said. “I was wide open. We work on stuff like that at practice.” Federico, who has scored 17 goals, leads the team with 18 assists. Many have found Farrel’s stick. “I always look to Emma because we have a really good connection on and off the field,” she said. “We’re really close. It was a nice shot. I see it all the time. We practice that quick shot at practice a lot and Emma’s very good at it. We’re super excited about the semifinals.” South Windsor’s season closed at 13-4-0-0. “We played Cheshire last year in the same situation,” Bobcats coach Jen Bolduc said. “We know how they play and we know they’re an aggressive team. We outplayed them in the first half, so we knew they were going to come out on fire in the second half and they did.” Cheshire goalie Lauren Fountain (four saves) and the Rams’ defense made the 2-1 lead stand up. “In the second half, we picked up our intensity and asked ourselves, ‘Do we want to go home? Do we want this to be the seniors’ last game?’” Farrel said. “The answer was, ‘No.’ It’s really exciting to see that we’ve made it this far this season.”

Spikers shake off disappointment, roll in state tournament opener By John Pettit Special to The Citizen

Cheshire girls volleyball coach Sue Bavone and the Rams are storming mad over the cancellation of the Southern Connecticut Conference Tournament final, scheduled for Nov. 7. “We are beyond disappointed,” Bavone said. “I really feel bad for the seniors. The kids were really looking forward to playing. It would have been a great stage to see


alternative date for the final in case of inclement weather. The CIAC state volleyball tournament began Nov. 8. Bavone added that the SCC tourney schedule was shuffled a couple of times in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. The league final was

supposed to take place Nov. 5, but it was changed to Nov. 7, Bavone was told, to accommodate Amity. “I’m disappointed they changed the whole entire tournament for one school, but my biggest gripe is that they should always leave a day for rescheduling the final instead of backing it up into the state tournament,” she said. “It’s unfortunate because every other sport got their championship. We’re the indoor sport and we don’t get our championship game.”



how the young kids react under pressure. On a lot of levels, we’re upset.” Cheshire was scheduled to meet Amity, the only team to beat it all season. The championship game was cancelled due to the nor’easter that struck Connecticut. The Rams and Spartans were declared league cochampions. Bavone does not disagree with that decision. She does, however, believe that the SCC should have set aside an

Amity met twice during the regular season. The Rams won 3-1 on Sept. 28 and lost 3-2 on Oct. 15. “We wanted a chance to avenge that loss,” said Bavone. “The kids are very disappointed. I heard from many of them and they’re just devastated. I’m hoping we don’t dwell on that and that we use the anger and negative feelings we have right now and channel them in the appropriate way for states.” Cheshire earned a No. 2 seed and a first-round bye in the Class LL tournament. The Rams defeated No. 15 Westhill, 3-0, Saturday in Round 2. The victors won by game scores of 27-25, 25-20 and 2511. Leading the way for Cheshire, 20-1 overall, against Westhill (15-6) were Amanda Palladino (17 kills, 12 blocks), Lisa Walle (12 kills, two blocks, three digs) and Sarah Rodgers (26 assists, four digs, two blocks). Cheshire was slated to face No. 10 Staples in the LL quarterfinals Tuesday, after press time.
